This cooler has a broken pin, fan bearings are rattling, the nickel plating is peeling and underneath it doesn look like copper lol,

Anyway I will be overclocking with the new cooler somewhere between 3.0 to 3.4 Ghz

I need a recomendation for cooler, can't decide, so here is what a looked at

COOLER MASTER Hyper Z600
COOLER MASTER v8
Vigor Monsoon III
Tuniq Tower
Sycthe Mugen 2

Two top cooler are expensive and bottom 3 are kick ass and are in a good price range. Im open to any other coolers that i dont know about.

As for the thermal paste Artic Silver 5 looks good but open to any better recomandations.

aahhh now i get the whole lapping process however im not quite ready to do that lol to scared. In that case ill go for one of the total contact( completly even bottom) cooler.

looking at all these im kind of leaning towards sythe mugen 2 since it got flat bottom, and maybe not going to make to much noise like the vigor monsoon 3 with the 2 fans and has free shipping.

In my tests the CCF has performed better than the fenrir with the same speed fan (=
